I don’t know exactly where you are at right now in your life .. if you’re excited and on fire, chasing your current passion, and living your most radiant life or if you’re at the opposite end of the spectrum – feeling overwhelmed, stressed, and like there’s just not enough of you to go around. If you’re chasing your passion good for you, keep going, because the world needs you!! If you’re on the other end of the spectrum, please keep reading…
I venture to guess that a lot of your closest friends and family may not know exactly where you right now in life either. We tend to put on a ‘happy face’, or a mask, when we’re around others, and not show our true selves. For example, I was in deep adrenal fatigue, even burnout, and some of my closest friends, who saw me at least once a week, had no idea. But, I summoned up my energy for those ‘appearances’, and they took a lot out of me… and I would need to recover afterward. I would literally wonder, “How does everyone else do it?”, when I could literally do only the bare minimum, and not well even.
When my nearly two-year-old was learning her colors, when asked what color something was, she would consistently say ‘umm… blue’ or ‘umm … yellow’. That ‘umm’ part, that was me. She would ask me what color something was, and I literally would say ‘umm..’, and then come up with the color… because that’s how fuzzy my brain was at the time. So that’s how she learned her colors and thought that ‘umm’ was part of the name of a color. And it never even occurred to me until some friends thought it was cute .. and I realized what was happening… that I was inadvertently teaching her that.
I promise you, I do know my colors. I even have a college degree and graduated with honors, twenty plus years ago. But when I was under the thumb of adrenal burnout, three years ago, I couldn’t fathom how I ever managed to graduate from college, as there I was struggling with coming up with naming colors for my daughter. I would get so confused during a conversation with my teenage daughter, that it was impossible to continue and I just had to stop the conversation midway through. Emotions would hit me hard and often and I spent a lot of time crying .. locking myself in the bathroom or in my closet. But, I could at least usually reasonably pull myself together enough during my ‘public’ appearances, that I appeared normal and functioning. But, I was anything but.
I finally got some outside help to help me to overcome this experience.. a lot actually, over the past three years. I am forever grateful to Lisa Grace Bryne of Well Grounded Life to learn deep self-care, Ashley Meyer of Organique for targeted nutritional assistance, Juli Lynch of Epala and her horses to open me up to deep transformational change, and Merja Sumiloff of The Merja Sumiloff Project for further transformational work and mentoring.
The adrenal burnout was actually a blessing .. I have learned and grown so much because of that experience. I’ve studied under three of my mentors (Lisa, Juli & Merja) to learn how to bring this deep work to other women, to help them to make positive changes in their own lives. I’ve come to really know who I am and overcome my childhood wounding, which was still impacting me in powerful, insidious ways. I’ve learned that I am strong, courageous, and resilient. I’ve learned that I can speak my truth and that I am the only person who can define me. And, best of all, I’ve learned how to transform all the pain that I’ve experienced and into a powerful force for good, and I want to share this with others.
Where are you in your life right now? Take some time and make an honest assessment. Are you living true to your own values, to your vision of what your life would be? Are you setting an example for your children for them to aspire to? Are you making a difference in the world with your own unique gifts and talents?
I am creating a program to help those of you who are suffering from overwhelm, stress, and feeling like you’re ‘not enough’. I want to walk alongside those of you who are struggling as I was, to help you realize the possibilities you can claim in your own life. So that you can overcome and look back and see the gift that was in that dark place. To be able to live your own radiant life, right now, right where you are.
I’m excited to offer 10 women three free 30-minute 1:1 mentoring sessions, valued at $225. There will be a brief introductory assessment of your current reality and then we’ll begin the mentoring sessions (either via phone or Skype), one per week. You will gain new tools to help you navigate your life, tailored to your unique situation. You will begin to understand the deeper ‘whys’ behind your actions (or your inaction), and how to overcome the feeling of overwhelm and stress. After completion of the three sessions, there will be a final brief assessment. These sessions will help to refine the paid program that I will be offering soon. I would love for you to be a part of this!
I’m inviting you to a free opportunity to learn to lighten your load and adjust your perspective. Please realize that you are expected to put in your own effort. I can walk alongside you and deeply support you, but I can’t do your work for you. There will be work for you to do, including personalized weekly homework assignments. These assignments will be based on your current situation and will be directly related to your life. Rather than a theoretical approach, this approach leads to deep learning and understanding of the situation at hand. You will learn to apply these tools to think and understand for yourself so that you can continue using these tools as new situations arise. These assignments will be brief, approximately 30 minutes or less per week, and will fit into the current context of your days. I will ask you to submit a written summary before your next session to (1) hold you accountable and (2) make our next session as productive as possible.
If you’re ready to say ‘YES!’ to this opportunity, then drop me a note at ursa<at>oneradiantlife.com or send me a Facebook message. Peruse my website to learn more about me. If you have any questions at all, please ask!! Anyone who responds after the 10 slots have been filled will be added to a special mailing list and receive discounted pricing for the initial run of the course when it becomes available. (This offer good through June 30, 2017.)
I look forward to journeying with these 10 women who are the first to step forward and say ‘Yes’ to themselves and their own lives. Are you ready begin the journey to step into your own radiant life? Let’s go forward together.
